Peripherals often take a back seat in the budget to make room for the graphics card, gaming CPU, and other core components, but equipping yourself with the right gaming mouse can sometimes be the difference between digital life and death. It doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg for a good one, though, as the SteelSeries Rival 650 wireless gaming mouse currently sports a sizable discount.
Waving goodbye to the triple figure asking price, you can get the former flagship rodent 25% cheaper on Amazon in the US, bringing the price to a much more manageable $89.50. Over the water, it’ll set UK shoppers back £79.99, with its current 33% reduction saving you £40 in the process.
Back when the wired SteelSeries Rival 600 came out in 2018, we said it was a wireless link away from being the best gaming mouse: which is exactly what the Rival 650 is. It features the same seven-button layout, a TrueMove 3 optical sensor with 1:1 tracking and 12,000DPI, and a secondary sensor dedicated to handling the adjustable 0.5mm liftoff from your mouse pad.
